U.S. Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-5) welcomed Tom Bracken, the President of the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce, to Paramus Today to tag team on a Tax Hike Bill beat down.
Flanked by local Chamber leaders throughout Northern New Jersey, Gottheimer and Bracken bashed the Tax Hike Bill and exposed how it makes New Jersey less affordable and less competitive.
“This proposal is exactly what we do not need at this time,” Bracken said. “If this legislation is approved, people and businesses will have another reason to leave New Jersey, and people thinking of living here or moving their business here will have another reason to look for an alternative.”
Gottheimer last week voted against the bill.
A prospective opponent, former Bogota Mayor Steve Lonegan, said he supports the bill.
